One of the greatest ‘perfect murder’ tropes of all time – two strangers exchange crimes in an effort to misdirect discovery – comes from the Patricia Highsmith novel that Hitchcock and his collaborators adapted for this thrilling film. A foolish tennis player (Granger) meets a charming but sinister man (Walker) on a train and the rest is cinematic history.
Staff Pick! Michael: “As Sir Alfred Hitchcock stated best to François Truffaut, ‘Isn’t it a fascinating design? One could study it forever.’ A film with just as many layers in the production as there are to the two characters who embark on a very grave open ended deal. Inspired by the novel with the same name by Patricia Highsmith.”
